David Cameron defends UK Libya operations
David Cameron has said that the UK did not suffer from not having an aircraft carrier during the military operation in Libya.
He said: "A lot of armchair generals who said you couldn't do it without an aircraft carrier, they were wrong."
Mr Cameron also praised UK forces in their military role in the Nato-led operation to protect Libyan civilians from Col Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
Speaking on the BBC Radio 4's Today programme, he said: "We should be proud of what our forces did."
